A JOYFUL BEACON SITTING ON THE PARK HILL BY ARTIST PAUL INSECT TO MEET, HANGOUT AND SHARE IN THE GLASTONBURY EXPERIENCE

Creative Giants worked in collaboration with artist Paul Insect to develop a 7 metre tall  sculpture, commissioned by Glastonbury’s co-organiser, Emily Eavis for the 2019 Festival. 

The giant sculpture had to be built to rigorous specification, with materials, resources and finish treatments all complying to the strictest of health and safety regulations. It had to be built to be disassembled and reassembled for future festivals.  

The entire process was run ‘in-house’ over several months, from hand sketches and foam models to CAD analysis, construction drawings, fabrication and finally installation.

The project was an enormous success for everybody involved; a visit to the happy face of the Rainbow Dude was frequently listed in the top ten things to see in Glastonbury 2019.

Combined with special edition prints, artist Paul Insect was elevated to be recognised alongside Banksy as one of the Festival’s takeover visual artists.

“An alienated character escaping the polluted sky to instead enjoy the festival atmosphere and hang out with the sun-kissed crowds of Glastonbury Festival”

  • CLIENT: Coventry City Council 
  • LOCATION: Hertford Street  
  • SERVICES: Curator/ Project Management 

THE DETAILS

Morag Myerscough’s “Endless Ribbon Connecting Us” is a dramatic new installation in the canopy of Hertford Street. Myerscough transforms the space with a bold simplicity of light and colour, taking inspiration from Coventry Cathedral’s stained-glass windows. Using natural light to fuse the colour, Myerscough creates a place where, even with gloomy skies, colours radiate down with a warm glow to materialise in an endless ribbon that connects us all. Hertford Street is no longer an unloved part of town, it is a vibrant, radical beacon that puts the high street location very much on the map.
